Re: Which window is easiest to replace (need to break one)

When my keys were locked inside the car the breakdown service used an inflatable bladder to ease the top of the door frame away. Surprising how much the frame would flex without the glass breaking. But end result is that the frame did not return 100% so the door seal is no longer watertight and when it rains heavily the rear seat cushions and floor carpet ger very wet

Also I had a vandal smash my passenger door window. The mobile window fitters replaced the new glass in minutes just dropping the new glass into the aperture. They didn't even bother removing the door card and hoovering out the shattered glass

Hope you eventually find a way without resorting to these types of fixes. Have you searched Youtube for any helpful vids of how to pop the bonnet?

Don't take without giving in return
